Damselfly Dog Nobbler – stillwater trout fly tying

Tying SBS and underwater action of the UK classic, the Dog Nobbler. This fly was designed by all round angler Trevor Housby, after inspiration from American spin fishermen using ultralight tackle and small jigs. I learned about it from my friend Jens Ploug Hansen, who brought some of Trevor’s flies home after fishing with the originator. This is one of the worlds most effective streamer flies for large rainbows and browns – and I have had great succes using it for char. Needless to say, its great for panfish, bass and other species as well. In my opinion it excels fished on a floating line, but if you fish deep lakes or fast streams, a sinking line is an option too. The action of this fly is unreal ;0)
